This is a two platform station with a passing loop. It is separated from the goods yard to the south, which is now a permanent way siding, by a level crossing.
The station building (now an RSPB centre Forsinard Flows Visitor Centre ) still stands on the northbound platform. A timber waiting shelter with a heavy rolling door still stands on the southbound platform. The north end of the platforms are extended in timber. The station formerly had a lattice footbridge between the platforms, at the north end.
At the north end of the northbound platform is the disused former north box. Both north and south boxes opened around 1894. The south box was south of the level crossing and on the east side of the line opposite the goods yard turn out. The boxes closed in 1985 with the introduction of RETB and control passed to Dingwall.
The station formerly had a water tank for steam engines. This was south of the level crossing and on the east side. Water columns were provided on both platforms.
